    Summary

    Stiles laughs. “The day I become a mail-order bride is the day I eat my hat.”

     

    “You don’t even wear a hat."

     

    “I’ll buy a hat for the occasion,” Stiles says. “A white one with a veil.”

     

    (Stiles doesn't eat a hat, but that's just because he's too busy with his new husband, his five children, his new husband's ex, and a deadly feud with the neighboring ranch)

    Summary

    "For the last four years, Catra’s routine had been the same.

    Every day, she woke up just after dawn; left the comfort of her own bed to go prepare food for her, her husband, and whatever guests they might have; and checked the supply of ale in the cellar.

    Then, she would make sure all the mugs and glasses were clean. Once people started rolling in, usually just after noon, the bar would be wiped down and the musicians she employed would be setting up. She would make idle conversation with the others and finish cleaning up until the first groups of men looking for a drink showed up with pockets that clinked and jingled with coins, and then the rest of the night would be spent cleaning mugs and pouring ale.

    Catra had resigned herself to this life with a sort of detached acceptance.

    Then, a Rebellion captain walked into her establishment, and she knew instantly that something was about to change."

    or, Captain Adam Fairchild, who harbors a secret that could get him killed, goes in search of a spy to help the Rebellion's cause. He finds it — and much, much more — in a tavern-keeper's wife.

One day, Senku sends his advisor, Gen, to discuss peaceful terms with Tsukasa for the winter. However, Tsukasa will not accept the offer of shelter for the winter, so Gen, in a desperate attempt to gain a truce, offers the prospect of marriage; Chief Tsukasa to Lord Senku.

    Summary

    He thought back to the life he was leaving behind, hoping that no trace would be left behind. It wasn’t like he had much of anything in the small dusty town anyways. The only thing the town held for him besides shelter in the form of an itchy hay bed on the floor of a barn was a low paying job as a ranch hand.

    Any pleasant memories he may have had of the town had been swallowed up by the last few hours anyways. George’s mind supplied him with images of mangled bodies and bloodied grass. A loud ringing bounced around in his skull, sharp screaming voices in his ears-and George fell unconscious.

    Or, George lives a simple life on a ranch until he doesn't.

    Summary

    Day 3: Flowers

    “I promise you. I promise I’ll come back.”

    He promises, George thinks wistfully. He promises such a thing- to offer George with his word on something, to uphold it. It’s as if he’s saying that he’ll give the world to him, just for him. But somewhere is the lingering thought in George's mind is that he won't come back. That the cruel war that had riddled their land will take him too, and he will be left wonted and worry worn. George shivers at the thought.

    “You promise?”

    That you’ll come home to me?

    And as if he heard those unspoken words. Dream beams at him.

    “I promise. You won’t even notice that I was gone, my love.”

    George releases a wet and broken laugh at the cheesy pet name. Dream does too before pulling him back into his embrace.

    They stay there for a bit. The war can wait.

    “I promise I’ll be waiting.”

    Summary

    ‘’I’ll miss you,’’ Jisung whispers and Minho actually winces by the pure pain dripping off the words and he buries his head into the younger’s thigh even more, ‘’I love you,’’

    It’s incredibly unfair for Jisung to say something like that even though it’s completely justified.

    He hears Jisung let out a shaky sigh and the fingers suddenly disappear from his hair. Minho looks up and sees Jisung looking down on him with a fake smile and the older smiles back just as fabricated.

    ----------

    Lee Minho, the third prince, gets send off to get married to someone that isn't Jisung, the second son of the general. It's a long trip, one Minho has managed to drag Jisung into, and having the younger escort him to his new home is both a blessing and a curse.

    Summary

    As a newly minted war hero for saving the kingdom’s favorite vassal, Sir Bokuto, Atsumu has traveled to the city to formally receive the rights to the Inarizaki fiefdom. He is absolutely not trying to win the hand of rich, rude, flouncy Lord Sakusa, the court’s most eligible bachelor.

    Sir Bokuto should be helping Atsumu assimilate among the nobility, but instead, he is occupied with looking after Lord Akaashi, who seems to be out of favor after his royal betrothal to another is dissolved.

    --

    “So, which one is he?” Lord Sakusa asks. His face is impassive as he crosses his arms, eyes moving slowly between Osamu and Atsumu with what appears to be boredom.

    It’s a question they get so often it’s become commonplace. Yet the dismissive tone irks Atsumu in a way that makes him straighten his spine and smile harder. Sakusa is the epitome of everything Atsumu had assumed the nobility would be: snooty, disdainful, and condescending.

    “Me,” he spits out. Even he is a little taken aback by his own tone. Osamu shoots him a dismayed look. Bokuto laughs uncomfortably.

    “Did you say something?” Leia asked, and Ben immediately snapped out of it.

    “No. I am saying nothing until we get there,” he announced. “Honestly, mother. I am not plucking a random woman to be my duchess in Spinster Cove.”

    “Funny how silence can fill a room so loudly,” Leia mused, a smile playing on her lips. “We shall be arriving shortly. You better start thinking about what you want from a future duchess, because we will not be leaving this place without one.”
